At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 feet
A bright and cheery morning is sparkling over the Seven Bays this morning, a fresh and sharper air to tempt you out along with enough clear skied sunshine to keep you out.
The surf is small, a foot or two of glassy little peaks folding themselves ashore beneath that early morning sunshine. It should improve throughout the day though, doubling in size by this evening’s low tide, the early afternoon high maybe having some fun gliders on offer?
A pleasant summer’s day of longboard sliding and gliding awaits!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Harlyn is oozing atmosphere this morning, the clear and fresh air of the lightest of westerly breezes making for a pleasant place to linger a while, a pre-work swim sharpening up some while the dogwalkers greet and chat and watch, Ed trotting back from his early morning lap.
The early morning rhythm of a summer bay has a relaxation all of its own but surfing is not included in that today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 19:45 (2.2m) High Tide: 13:17 (6.0m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 30th July 2020
Light south easterly breezes and a steady three foot swell are the rare and magical ingredients for a fun summer’s day of surfing. Add in some wall-to-wall sunshine along with hot temperatures and everything is looking good for a splendid day at most of our surf spots.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
The jet stream seems to have slipped down to the south of us for a while and that’s going to let a few fronts gallop through bringing a little dampness and some blustery onshore wind to start the week.
Monday might well be spent over at Harlyn in smaller waves on the incoming tide, those waves being much cleaner than most of the other breaks, hopefully a foot or two of fun little snappers in summer temperature waters.
But that wind is likely to be north westerly by Tuesday, onshore everywhere and making for chillier temperatures as well. Then again, as I’m always saying, Harlyn can be fun when it’s onshore there, you have more time to get into the wave than when it’s steaming offshore. We’ll have to wait and see if the swell is big enough though to swing all the way around Trevose Head and then find its way into the bay.
But by midweek the wind should have calmed before easing offshore for the end of the week.
So we should be back to our favourite little surf breaks to catch a short but building swell through Thursday and into Friday.
Well, that’s the plan anyway!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
